  The top U.S. diplomat for East Asia, Kurt Campbell, front, arrives at a hotel in Beijing, China, in the early morning of Sunday, April 29, 2012. Campbell arrived in China apparently to deal with the case of blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng who escaped house arrest in his Chinese village and is reportedly under the protection of American officials. Fellow activists say Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer who exposed forced abortions and sterilizations as part of China's one-child policy, fled house arrest a week ago and has sought protection at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.
